Sharron Kay King In Studio Recording First New Album in Five Years
BYRON, Ga. – (August 10, 2012) – 2012 Absolutely Gospel Music Award nominee Sharron Kay King is in the studio this week recording vocals for her first studio-recording in over five years. The new recording, titled This Story of My Life, is the follow-up to her latest project Don’t Stop Believing.
This Story of My Life is being produced by Mike Pillow (Ricky Atkinson & Compassion, Naomi Sego, Ann Downing) and has a tentative release date of this fall.
“This record has definitely been a labor of love for me,” mentioned Sharron Kay. “God has brought me through so much over the last few years, and this recording is a testimony to the things that He has done in my life. I am so excited for everyone to hear the songs that were birthed from this time of my life.”
Sharron wrote or co-wrote 10 of the 12 tracks including the title cut. Other writers and co-writers included award-winning writers Steve & Annie Chapman, John Robinson, Becky Wright, Chris Binion, and Sharron’s son-in-law Sean Anderson.
“So many of these songs mean so much to me,” replied Sharron. “I got to collaborate on ‘Alabaster Box’ with my daughter Liz who used to travel and sing with me many years ago. Also, ‘She’d Rather Be Here With Me’ was given to me by Steve & Annie Chapman and reflects the story of my mother and her recent passing.”
More information on the new recording including a definitive release date, the first single, and some other surprise appearances will be announced at a later date.
Sharron has been singing and speaking at ladies retreats and recovery groups more frequently this year due to her amazing testimony of God’s redeeming power and grace. For information on how you can book Sharron at your church or event, visit http://www.sharronkayking.com.
Sharron recently released her latest single to radio. The new song, titled “Look Up,” is the fifth single released from King’s Don’t Stop Believing. “Look Up” was written by Eric Horner and was just released to Southern Gospel radio through Eddie King & Crown Communications.
All four of Sharron’s previous singles from Don’t Stop Believing landed in the Top 20 on the AbsolutelyGospel.com Top 40 Weeky Chart – the industry’s most watched weekly radio report in Southern Gospel music.
Sharron was honored earlier this year to see their name among the 10 nominees for Fan Favorite Artist of the Year in the highly-respected Absolutely Gospel (SGN) Music Awards. This is the second time in her career that Sharron has been nominated for an Absolutely Gospel Music Award.
